Canvasback Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||United States, Washington, Red Mountain|
Coming from a warm vintage in a hot region, this wine brings light aromas of mineral and red and black fruit along with a barrel-spice top note. The black-cherry flavors are lush, full and palate coating, supported by firm tannins. It's high on the delicious scale.
Wine & Spirits
Bright ruby-red. Pungent nose combines cassis, blackberry, fresh herbs, sweet oak and black olive. At once dense and juicy, conveying a fine-grained texture and very good energy and definition to its flavors of plum, pomegranate and currant. Some very ripe notes and sexy oak tones contribute to the impression of pliancy.
Firm and tightly wound, with demure notes of currant and cedar that struggle with grippy tannins. Best after 2018. 14,850 cases made.
